Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

Tbf, aside from the "untouchable Wilkinson" attitude that some will adopt, as a neutral, I personally didn't see anything wrong with that hit by Betsen....

Looked to me like a borderline "I was committed" hit...

I like where gonzoman has gone with it. Ok Stroudos I'm probably 100% sure, but it's just that niggly thing that's coming into the game where we're policing shit that really shouldn't need policing amongst "men".

And this isn't a backs V forwards thing here either, but backs on a whole might be ever so slightly understood if they fell after Skelton clocks them, but Davies is supposed to be a flanker for crying out loud - the recent heritage, McCaws, Pococks, Betson, Burger, Moody, Back, Martyn Williams, there are some tough bastards who have scrummed down on the flank, and this prat wobbles around after a small tap!!

Thanks RD. Yup, complete prick, should have been banned for that. Bad language, in heat of the moment is bad enough, but then gesturing after the warning should get him a ban!

Saracens secure draw with hard fought Chris Ashton try in extra time

Ahhh "The Crunch", I've always wondered what the French was for 'Le Crunch'....

I'd have probably said something like "mate, the way you fell after that tap, I don't want to risk breaking your hand just shaking it!!"

I'm with Stroudos, it's disgraceful for them not to effectively shame him on air....

The main issue I do have is that I'm 99.9% sure this was simulation, BUT, what if it wasn't? Sweet spot an all that.... The problem I have is that now the game which policed itself is changing, we're having to call out things which never happened? Or rarely happened....

Thought I recognised the name.... The guys got a reputation for being a prick... He should be put in stocks and flogged...

Will have to research Ashton's try, but I'm starting to think that he was being mouthy to that 7(?)... Perhaps that was the reason...

As for this... Skelton was off for the remainder of the match with a yellow, he should have smacked that diving prick when he went to shake hands! He's off anyway!

Don't get me wrong, I don't condone sucker punched, but that diving prick deserved something worthwhile to hit the deck for...
